We enjoyed our stay at this villa. We were a family of 7 with a child and we all felt very comfortable. The rooms are bright and clean, bathrooms are good. Outside area is amazing, we spent most of our time there. The house is very well equipped. There are wi if, dishwasher and laundry room,which made our stay really enjoyable.The villa looks better than on the pictures. The location of the house is perfect. There are few interesting places around to visit ( Sanremo, Imperia). It is quite close to Monaco and Nice. There are few large supermarkets around (Carrfour, Conad10min drive). We used to go to Vittoria Beach (Arma di Taggia, 10 min drive), which was sandy and clean with beautiful clear water. Perfect for a child.
The hosts, Emanuele and his wife, are very friendly and helpful. We had a small problem with a gate one day, Emanuele answered quickly and sorted the problem out within 10 min.
Our family of four had a lovely week’s stay in Pigna. Our initial walk from where we left the car to unload round to the villa was breathtaking. Parts of the medieval village reminded me of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, with tiny alleys leading off and wooden doors with lamps hanging over. The villa had everything we needed and the outside space was perfect for relaxing or eating in the sun. The village of Pigna is quiet and friendly and where you feel part of the community. The local coffee shop sells amazing coffee, patisserie and ice cream, from where you can watch many cyclists come and go. The ‘local’ waterfalls we walked to provided many hours of exploration and relaxation alike. We visited the local bar and played pool and spent lovely evenings in other restaurants nearby. The beach at Bordighera is a stony beach where you can hire sun loungers, but we were comfortable enough to lay on towels and mingle in with the many locals who came down late afternoon. The sea varied from calm and tranquil to vast, smashing waves - both as equally enjoyed although the life guards were diligent in keeping people safe. Visits to other villages to see Monet’s bridge, waterfalls and amazing views kept us all amused. Thanks to the comprehensive information we received prior to going and in the villa this helped us to make the most out of our week, although also leaves us feeling that we need to go back for more!
